Living in the Great NorthWet, I am looking for some fenders that cover as much as possible. I have seen bikers splice together two fenders for some super coverage. Anyone know of one piece fenders that I might try?

Thanks
It depends on clearance. What frame are you using? nmDave Hickey

The "Full Fenders" by SKS work great for me. I commute from Bellevue to the west side of Lake Union here in the great "Northwet" and they cut the spray to almost zero.

There may be better deals, but AE Bike sells em for $27.

BTW - the connection detail of the struts and the fender itself is EXCELLENT on these. I tried another fender (Ithink from Zefal?) a few years back that had some kind of plastic compression coupling that screwed on and it basically sucked.

When I lived in the Redmond, WA area I had these fenders on my training bike and can attest to their construstion, durablility, and ability to keep the water off. On group training rides it was almost comical to watch riders fight to get on the wheel of a rider who was using fenders.

Give the guys @ Sammamish Valley Cycles in Redmond a buzz. When it comes to fenders, not many can compare with the ingenuity that they exhibit. They've done both of our rain bikes this season and we're plenty happy. Only $65, too!!

SKS are nice and all, but they haven't been the most durable for me. Here's a nice sumary of fenders that are not just the usual SKS plastic fenders.

These nice aluminum fenders will be going on the Vanilla I'm having built.

Be the first on your block with the carbon fenders to make a real statement.
